“Jeff Tweedy’s acoustic pedal board just consists of an Electro Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb, a [volume pedal](https://equipboard.com/items/ernie-ball-volume-pedal), and the ubiquitous [Boss TU-2](https://equipboard.com/items/boss-tu-2-chromatic-tuner) tuner.” - [*Austin City Limits*](http://acltv.com/tag/gear/).more
Aaron North about the Ehx Holy Grail pedal, admist a post made December 07, 2009.... "Again... I used this pedal on more NIN songs than I didn't... So I'm not gonna sit here all day listing every song we played. This exact pedal even goes back to the "Penance Soiree" Icarus Line album, on which it was used a ton. Best and simplest reverb pedal available. Period."more
Howdeshell’s guitar pedalboard is simple. “I use an [Ibanez] Tube Screamer, which doesn’t completely distort the guitar—you can still hear the strings,” he says. “I also have a Boss Digital Delay, which I use for a really short slapback delay on pretty much every song. And for reverb, sometimes I’ll turn it up my Holy Grail superloud so that everything turns into a wash.”more
> As for the dirt in my signal, I’ve been using a Crowther Audio Hotcake, which I love because it’s versatile and mixes great with any amp that I put it through. Some others on my board are a Radial Tonebone Classic distortion, Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail for reverb and an ISP Decimator.more
The Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb brings the price down to earth, too. It will make believers with its emulation of classic spring reverb (so faithful even Dick Dale would be impressed). Its hall reverb is lush and spacious. And the Holy Grail Reverb has a flerb reverb that's a haunting sound like no other.
The Holy Grail features three types of reverb: hall, spring, and flerb, which is a flange+reverb setting. Each setting sounds great and fills out the tone of whatever one is playing very well. It can be used for ambient swells or delay work, or to round out a driven sound. The amount of reverb is modifiable, and the pedal could not be easier to use. I recommend this pedal very much for the price for those looking for a professional sound.
Great reverb. There are better reverbpedals, but the warm sound is really great for a pedal in this pricerange. I like The sounds very much. Only con is that the pedal with the knob over 3 o' clock quite useless sounds.....
This was always present for so many years even though FAR better reverb pedals have come along I can't rate lower because it served me so well for so many years. It does just what it says on the tin. There are far better reverb pedals available now (hell, in my collection-see Strymon BigSky! ) but this one will always hold a special place in my heart. Can't bring myself to sell them...
